On Saturday August 11th, 2012, New York City will host its first ever Ironman Triathlon. Consisting of a 2.4 mile swim in the Hudson River, a 112 mile bike ride along the Palisades Parkway, and a 26.2 mile run ending in the UWS on 81st St, the toughest race in sport will be amplified by one of the world’s greatest backdrops.
In this short feature, SB Nation follows Brooklyn native Mike Polsky as he trains for his first Ironman, to get a glimpse of the persistence and dedication required to train for a race of this magnitude.
